On March 1st, the network marked it’s 30th anniversary on the air. Apparently the channel didn’t celebrate this. I only saw one tweet indicating the anni. (Love the Lego letters on the third pic!)
Happy 30th Birthday @NECN – so proud of what this station has become.
I love my amazing team, who work so hard every single day to carry on a legacy decades in the making.

Once upon a time the channel was half owned by the Hearst Corporation and the other half was Continental Cablevision (if memory serves me, the big Eastern Massachusetts cable chain that was one of the seven degrees to the present day Comcast.) Because the half venture, that meant the management was local and independent from influence from either company.
Late in February, I came across a playlist on my YouTube of some clips that are on there that from the ol New England Cable News prior to the mid 2010s.
